As always, Bob is an unexcelled repository of minutae about the palace. I had no idea either that the ironwork was blue. I wonder if the extremely cold climate had anything to do with the longevity of the ironwork that does remain. IN a warmer, more humid climate, it would have rusted away long ago with the kind of neglect it has has to endure.

I have a quesiton as well about doors, etc.

Since we know the right wing might be in a far better condition than the family wing, do you suppose there are more original fixtures such as lighting, door hardware, doors, etc. there?

In 1904-1905 when the decision was made to add 18 lamps to the Alexandrovsky Park fence, they also increased the height the fence. In 1907 they replaced the kerosene lights with electric lights.
